CHAPTER 6 SYSTEM DYNAMIC ANALYSES The device was in the form of an inverted beam engine, and incorporated the

characteristic phase shift between the displacer and piston that we see all Stirling engine today. The engine also featured the cyclic heating and cooling of the internal gas by means of an external heat source, but the device was not yet known as Stirling engine. In Beta type Stirling engine, it consists single power piston and displacer, whose ideal purpose is to displace the working gas at constant volume and shuttle it between the expansion and the compression spaces than the series arrangement cooler, regenerator and heater. For Rhombic linkage, the drive utilizes a jointed rhomboid to convert linear work from a reciprocating piston to rotational work. The connecting rod of the piston is rigid as opposed to a common reciprocating engine which directly connects the piston to the crankshaft with a flexible joint in the piston. Instead, the rod is connected to the one of the corner of a rhombus. When force is applied to the piston, it pushes down, at the same time, the outer corners of the rhomboid push out. They push on two cranks or flywheels which causes them to rotate, each in opposite directions. As the wheels rotate the rhombus progresses its change of shape from being flattened in the direction to the piston axis at top dead centre to being flattened in the perpendicular direction to the piston axis at the bottom dead centre. Dead centre is when the value of clearance is nearly same as the power maximum then the engine is assume as stable condition where there is no vibration.

Force generated from the piston. the displacer pressure exerted is the same as the pressure on the displacer and the area of the displacer is the same with the area of the power piston since diameter of piston is equal to the diameter of displacer ( ) From Schmidt’s analysis.Volume of cooler Volume of heater Volume of regenerator From the figure. the pressure ( ( ) .
